The future of prison mental health care in England
Poor mental health is exceptionally common in prison. 45% of adults in prison have anxiety or depression, 8% have a diagnosis of psychosis, and 60% have experienced a traumatic brain injury.

In recent years prison suicides have reached record levels, and so too have recorded self-harm and violence. (Source: Current Awareness Service for Health (CASH))
